Tyla’s story over the past few years has been like a modern-day fairytale. It feels almost unbelievable how quickly she’s skyrocketed from local success to international acclaim. Remember Getting Late, her debut single with Kooldrink back in 2019? That infectious track with its blend of pop and African influences put her on the watchlist in South Africa.


The 14-track album is an exciting collection of songs, it’s also a statement. “Water,” the global smash hit, is there of course, alongside a fire remix featuring hip-hop star, Travis Scott. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The guest list on this album reads like a who’s who of contemporary music, with collaborations featuring the sultry sounds of Tems, the smooth flow of Gunna, the infectious energy of Skillibeng, the Latin flair of Becky G, the soulful stylings of Kelvin Momo, and of course, the return of Travis Scott.

With a self-titled album boasting an impressive lineup of collaborators and the sheer talent and dedication Tyla has already showcased, TYLA is an impressive start to her journey of albums. It’s a celebration of African music on the global stage, and it’s a powerful declaration from an artist who is only getting started. Buckle up people, Tyla is here to stay.
